Do you know that chocolate is not only a delightful treat but also the result of an extraordinary production process that has evolved over centuries? Let's immerse ourselves in the world of chocolate and discover how it comes to be.
It all begins with cocoa beans, primarily cultivated in tropical regions on cocoa trees. After harvesting, the beans are transported to farms for fermentation and drying—a crucial step that profoundly influences the future chocolate's flavor.
What's intriguing is that we use unique cocoa varieties, comprising a mere 0.001% to 5% of the world's total production volume. Our chocolate is a genuine treasure.
Following the drying process, the beans make their way to chocolate factories, where the enchantment begins. Initially, cocoa beans are roasted and stripped of their husks, then ground into cocoa mass. Depending on the type of chocolate being produced, ingredients such as sweeteners and others are added to the mass.
The mixture undergoes several processing stages, including conching, which imparts smoothness to the chocolate, and tempering, ensuring the correct texture and gloss. Subsequently, the chocolate mass is poured into molds and cooled.
However, the process doesn't end there. Chocolate requires resting to develop its finest flavor. This stage is known as maturation. The longer the chocolate rests, the richer and more flavorful it becomes.
Now that you've gained insight into how chocolate is crafted, you can savor this incredible delicacy with even greater appreciation, understanding the tremendous effort invested in its creation.
